Big with a big B. We are are currently testing a huge cargo bag which opens up to be as big as a house! This prototype bag is currently being used professionally by cargo courier company By-Expressen and can hold 400 L, which is about 80 kg of boxed coffee for example.
It is made of durable truck tarpaulin and we’ll also make a smaller size too. We think we’ll make them in red or black.
We now have photographic evidence that Omnium bikes are loaded into the container and ready to take a romantic sea voyage to Copenhagen! It takes about 40 days for the bikes to arrive so we think by late February we’ll be unpacking shiny new frames and sending out invitations to our launch event. Price lists and photography will also be finalised.
We have already had two prototype frame-sets built of the Omnium Cargo model and these are currently being used full-time to deliver parcels and to carry children in Copenhagen. This full use testing has provided valuable feedback for the first production run.
Here’s some images from our factory. This is one of the Omnium Cargo production frame-sets being built up. It has a number of new features which were developed after extensive test riding on our prototypes. The pictures are before the frame has been bead-blasted and powder coated so you can see the brazing and welding details.
Double cable holders for more set-up flexibility:
Ovalised rear stays for better heel clearance and more stiffness:
Stronger, thicker control tab and steer bar. Total safety and reliability:
Copenhagen cargo messenger Nicolai Thilo, who rides for ByExpressen talks to DR1 about riding safely and keeping warm in the winter. He’s one of our Omnium Cargo test pilots, testing the Omnium Cargo in the real world!
